At this point, I think that most people have heard about an ISIS leader being killed in a military move in Syria on Thursday. This happened to be one of the first things that I saw on Thursday morning after I woke up and looked at my phone.

Joe Biden is taking all the credit, but should he really? Let’s look at what really happened.

First of all, I will say that our military does deserve credit for this because it did happen as a result of the military action, but not directly from the military action.

The leader, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi was a major terrorist in the region and now he is dead. What happened is that the ISIS leader, under pressure from the U.S. special forces killed himself along with his entire family including his children.

“With no regard to the lives of his own family or others in the building, he chose to blow himself up … rather than face justice for the crimes he has committed, taking several members of his family with him,” Biden said.

“Last night’s operation took a major terrorist leader off the battlefield, and it sent a strong message to terrorists around the world: We will come after you and find you,” Biden added.

It really is a horrible and tragic thing that he did, but it’s to be expected from this sort of ideology. These sorts of people are dangerous and this religious ideology is dangerous. I will say that not all Muslims believe the same way that these terrorists do and I’m thankful for that. I do believe that there are Muslims out there who don’t really want this sort of violence. However, we must acknowledge that many still do and that the Qur’an actually does teach many of these things. I’ve mentioned some of them in the past, but if you’d like to look them up for yourself, just look for Surah 4:34, Surah 5:17, Surah 5:33, Surah 5:38, Surah 5:51, Surah 9:5, Surah 9:29, and Surah 9:123. That will tell you a lot.
